2016 Patron of the Year Recipient

Federal Realty Investment Trust VisArts 2016 Patron of the Year Recipient

Businesses have a vested interest in creating vibrant communities, and arts organizations are a valuable community asset,” says VisArts Executive Director, Alice Nappy."

VisArts is pleased to award Federal Realty Investment Trust (FRIT) the 2016 Partner of the Year Award. VisArts and FRIT, Rockville Town Square developer and VisArts Corporate Council member, believe that the Square is uniquely positioned to become both a retail/restaurant mecca and a creative arts destination.

PatronOfTheYear2016
Award presented by VisArts Board Chair Jack Devine to Federal Realty’s Ron Thomas

Together, we have developed an innovative partnership to bring a variety of visual arts experiences to the Square. In addition to serving on the Corporate Council since 2012, FRIT has made a generous donation of vacant retail space to VisArts. For the past two years, our VisArts Pop Up in the Town Square has been a home to our summer camp program, special classes and events, and has provided temporary studio space for working artists.

FRIT commissioned one of our affiliated artists to paint a vibrant mural on the exterior of a storefront under construction and has featured VisArts in PR campaigns broadcast from the Town Square.

We are grateful for FRIT’s ongoing collaboration as we seek new ways to bring the joy of engaging in creative, visual arts experiences to individuals and the community.

Please join VisArts and FRIT in bringing the visual arts to Rockville Town Square.
